There’s this interesting theory out there that every Pixar film exists in the same universe, that they’re connected by overarching themes that place them along a single, unified timeline. Since the hit-making animation studio is set to release two more films in the next few months, I thought it’d be interesting to put the theory out there, and start a conversation.
It begins with Brave, and Merida discovering the “the-will-of-the-wisps.” This magic turns her mother into a bear and is the reason why animals and inanimate objects behave like humans. A witch uses this magic and mysteriously vanishes through wooden doors. The magic from the will of the wisps eventually leads to...
The Incredibles are superheroes who maintain order and justice in the world. But the villain Buddy introduces artificially intelligent robots which try and destroy the superhumans. He also harnesses Zero Point Energy, a power source that exists in wavelengths and gives life to…
In Toy Story, toys learn which learn that another energy source is human love, upon which they thrive. In the first movie, the gang begins to understand what happens to toys that are isolated from humans...
In the second Toy Story 2 film the toys evolve to become more self-aware and begin questioning their purpose. Certain toys, like Jesse, begin to resent their human owners for abandoning them.
Resentment is also felt by animals too...
In Finding Nemo we learn that fish have very advanced intelligence and are suffering from human pollution and experimentation. They too begin to resent humans for their lack of concern for nature and the environment....
In Remy from Ratatouille, we see an even more advanced animal who walks on his hind legs, can read, and cook better than all the other humans. His relationship with Linguini is also the first time we see communication between animals and humans, but the tides are beginning to turn, as Remy essentially uses Linguini as his controllable cooking machine...
In Toy Story 3, three years later, the toys are also ready to take over. They’re fed up with being abused and some characters, like Lotso the Huggin’ Bear, hate humans with a passion...
Meanwhile, in UP, as a result of the increasing dominance of the BnL corporation, Carl is forced to give up his property. This foreshadows that BnL is the cause of widespread pollution that wipes out life on earth in the future. Carl also discovers that animals can communicate with humans and he learns how bitter they are at their subservient role...
In Cars, when the animals finally do rise up, the machines side with humans in the war because people are the source of the machine’s energy, but eliminating the animals throws off the balance of the ecosystem, so humans are sent away on a ship called the Axiom. All of the other machines are left behind to populate the world and run things...
This is confirmed in Cars 2 when humans are still nowhere to be found anywhere on earth. With the humans gone, the cars have to run on oil, but the oil eventually runs out...
Fast Forward a few hundred years when Wall-E is the only machine left on earth, surviving because of his connection to human culture and his relationship with the single remaining living creature, a sturdy cockroach. This robot Jesus and his aptly-named love, Eve, save the human race and help them come home to repopulate the planet. The end credits show the last plant growing into a mighty tree.......
